Jake Paul and Tommy Fury finally sat down for a press conference this week ahead of their much-anticipated catchweight clash with heaps of pride on the line.
The pair have twice attempted to make a fight happen, both occasions being cancelled due to issues on Fury’s end. Now, with both men in Saudi Arabia and just the weigh-in to come before fight night, it looks to be on.
Predictions from fighters, pundits and fans have been closely split, and the bookies have Paul as a slight favourite going into the bout, but many fans are now siding with Fury after claiming the American looked ‘nervous’ at the presser.

Both men have plenty of pressure on their shoulders, but Fury was given another hefty load when his father and trainer, John, agreed to a bet with Paul – lose and go home with nothing, win and take double.
